Dozens of rounds of live ammunition were found outside the Capitol Thursday morning, law enforcement officials said.
Dane County deputies found 11 rounds near the State street entrance Thursday morning, said UW-Madison Police Chief Susan Riseling. Twenty-nine rounds were found near the King Street entrance, and one round was found near the North Hamilton Street entrance, Riseling said.
Department of Administration lawyer Steven Means is asking that the Capitol be cleared for a security check.
Riseling said all the bullets were 22-caliber long rifle hollow points. Officers were conducting a sweep of the grassy areas and bushes outside the Capitol.
